Islander Ally Nordbruch-Goode is a woman with some omph to her.
Last year, over a 12 week period she managed to swim the distance of the English Channel (that’s 22 miles to you and me) in order to raise money for a charity that helps people with spinal cord injuries.
Every day in the UK, four people in the UK suffer a spinal cord injury and are told they may never walk again.
This is a shocking figure, so comforting to see that there’s a national charity, Aspire, who work with those people affected by spinal cord injuries. They help to create opportunity, choice and independence by offering practical solutions.
Well Ally is going to attempt to complete the challenge once again and hoping to raise £200 for the charity.
